HealthCare.gov continues to live up to the name “404care” with “unexpected” errors and blank white pages titled “Success URL.” Since people can’t actually buy Obamacare plans on the failure of an online marketplace, the administration decided to debut a window shopping tool that provides general premium estimates.

The good news? Chances are you can get to the website. The embarrassing news for the administration? It’s a dumbed down, less helpful version of eHealthInsurance.com.
